Benefit Make Over

After receiving some Benefit gifts for Christmas from my parents, part of the goody bag they got me included an invitation to get a complementary make over with one of Benefit’s expert beauty artists at my local store, so of course I instantly booked an appointment. 
It was a great experience, really refreshing to have someone else’s ideas and methods of applying make up, as well as seeing all the lovely products Benefit have to offer.
For Christmas, I received the High Beam luminescent complexion enhancer which has a gorgeous shimmer to it and leaves your highlighted features such as cheek bones and brow bones glowing.
Also, I was given the Benetint rose-tinted lip and cheek stain which smells soooo good, exactly like roses and leaves your cheeks with a natural colour and is really fun to use.
A little sample of Benefit’s new Triple Performance facial emulsion that smells lovely and really moisturises the skin.
And then, as previously mentioned in my Inspiration post, the POREfessional balm, which minimizes the appearance of pores and again, feels fantastic.

So with these lovely gifts on my dressing table, I was very excited to see how to use them from a different perspective and was very impressed by Niomie the beauty assistant. She showed me combining the POREfessional and the Triple Performance moisturiser really preps your skin and leaves it glowing, ready for foundation.

So after being transformed, I had to purchase Benefit’s new eye cream ‘eyes It’s Potent!’ because I find my eye area my biggest concern, as I often have dry, dark circles under my eyes so now, thanks to my demonstration,  hopefully I will have dewy bright eyes!
It was a fantastic experience, I loved feeling like a model being prepared for a photoshoot haha, and with my invitation acting like a voucher, I received a free Benefit make up bag with my purchase of the eye cream.

Here are all my goodies together-
